World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Scott Monument. Take a break from Edinburgh with a short trip to Rosslyn Chapel in Roslin, about 30 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, get to know the fascinating history of Edinburgh Old Town, examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland, and steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close.

To find where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh day trip planning site.

In January in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 7°C during the day and 1°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
